Adjust font size:

New Zealand singer Karen Davy broke a world record on Monday after nearly 48 hours of non-stop singing in Auckland.

She went home for a well-earned sleep, with a world record and a lot of money promised to Kidney Kids, a charity which takes care of children with kidney disease.

Davy began her record attempt on Saturday morning at the Botany Town Center in southeast Auckland.

She ended 47 hours and 29 minutes later, breaking the record by 51 minutes.

She got a five minutes break every one hour. Every song she sang had to be over three minutes in length and she got a 30- second break between songs to take a sip of water.

Each song was also timed by supporters and a representative of Guinness World Records.

She sang a series of songs which lasted three hours and repeated the series over and over for the duration of her 47 hours and 29 minutes on stage.
